1 2 Submitting devicetree (DT) binding patches 3 4 I. For patch submitters 5 6 0) Normal patch submission rules from Documentation/SubmittingPatches 7 applies. 8 9 1) The Documentation/ portion of the patch should be a separate patch. 10 11 2) Submit the entire series to the devicetree mailinglist at 12 13 email@example.com 14 15 II. For kernel maintainers 16 17 1) If you aren't comfortable reviewing a given binding, reply to it and ask 18 the devicetree maintainers for guidance. This will help them prioritize 19 which ones to review and which ones are ok to let go. 20 21 2) For driver (not subsystem) bindings: If you are comfortable with the 22 binding, and it hasn't received an Acked-by from the devicetree 23 maintainers after a few weeks, go ahead and take it. 24 25 Subsystem bindings (anything affecting more than a single device) 26 then getting a devicetree maintainer to review it is required. 27 28 3) For a series going though multiple trees, the binding patch should be 29 kept with the driver using the binding. 30 31 III. Notes 32 33 0) Please see ...bindings/ABI.txt for details regarding devicetree ABI. 34 35 1) This document is intended as a general familiarization with the process as 36 decided at the 2013 Kernel Summit. When in doubt, the current word of the 37 devicetree maintainers overrules this document. In that situation, a patch 38 updating this document would be appreciated.
